Do ya all know that the Tony Elumelu Foundation Programme 2019 has started accepting applications?.

If you wish to apply for this year's edition of the programme then you've got to hurry up.

Application deadline is 1st March 2019.

Before you apply for this year TEF programme there are a few things you should do, know and understand to improve you chances of being selected among the successful applicants.

I would be most honoured to provide free resources that would aid you in your application.

For a chance at success in the TEF programme, you have to understand how the examiners score your application, how much marks is allocated to each section of the application as well as the criteria for scoring such points.

The programme began in 2015 where about 1,000 persons are selected every year, for the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship programme.

The selected 1000 persons would receive entrepreneurial training, mentoring among other benefits and would also be receiving a seed capital of $5,000 ( or its equivalent in naira subject to current exchange rate).
The successful applicants would also be able to (later) access larger funds depending on their business needs

Let us now look at how your TEF application is scored.

Your TEF application is scored over a total of 100 marks on 5 sections as shown below:

1. FINANCIAL UNDERSTANDING (10 marks)
2. LEADERSHIP/ ENTREPRENEURSHIP SKILLS ( (15 marks)
3. BUSINESSES FEASIBILITY ( 20 marks)
4. MARKET OPPORTUNITIES (25 marks) and lastly
5. SCALABILITY (30 marks)

Let's try to dissect how you'd earn the 10marks from financial understanding. Your financial understanding would be scored based on the following criteria;

a. Does the logic of making money ( revenue) in this business add up? (3marks)

b. Does the current expense reflect all the possible operating cost associated with the business? (3marks)

c. Is the financial forecast for this business realistic? (2marks)

d. Does the break-even revenue/value reflect the time value of the invested cash/ cash to be invested? (2marks)

You can view the chart of how all the 5 sections would be scored for the TEF 2019 programme here:

https://jinows.com/2019/01/08/tony-elumelu-foundation-programme-2019-guide/

You would also find a free PDF picture guide on how to fill the TEF form as well as how much marks is awarded to each section of your application and how to get such marks.

There's a secret and a very invaluable ingredient that you must employ when you are applying for Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship programme 2019.

This is a feature you would find in almost every past winner's testimony.

THIS SECRET INGREDIENT IS A POWERFUL EMOTIONAL STORY.

You can invest your time in viewing the stories of past winner's and you'll find they all have a compelling emotional story behind their business ideas.

People talk about their ideas been born out of a common pain in their community, some out from the death of a loved one and they've made it their lifetime commitment not to allow such ugly incidence occur again.

Whatever your story might be, make it genuine and compelling and incorporate it into your application.

Do not forget to read this article before you apply.

It could be one or more of the following reasons;
1. Too much traffic on the site probably because of last minute rush. Be patient

2. You might have a poor network at your end. Try another network

3. Wrong site link. Try to register with this link : https://www.tefconnect.com.

I hope this helps. Time is of essence here, if you have more questions feel very free to ask.
